Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Best 'New to You" album of 2011

I love these type of lists because they give me such great listening ideas...So, what is the best album that is new to you that you heard this year? The best for me this year would be

1. Ray Charles/ Milt Jackson - Soul Brothers/Soul Meeting

2. Luther Allison - Bad News is Coming

These are two remarkable albums that blew me away upon the first listen. Dead/Non-Dead, makes no difference to me. Im stuck here at work for a full day today, so I thought I might make some good use out of it by gathering a new list of albums to check out....Happy Holidays and Cheers!

Resonance Records is coming out in March with a new release of previously unheard Wes Montgomery material from 1957 and 58. I already love it.

Some of the tracks are studio stuff, but also includes some live material from small clubs.

Not sure of the particular line-ups that will be featured, but all I know is it wont have the incredibly over-produced orchestral "stuff" from later in the 60's. Smaller the better.

If you have the first BS&T album with Al Kooper in charge, well this is an utterly exquisite live version of one of the tunes. I'm going to find this CD:

Live Art - Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

It's not new to me, but I've put off listening to it at all for several years so I could thoroughly enjoy it again. So right now, it's new to me once again. Unbelievable musicianship on this album. Branford Marsalis, Chick Corea, Sam Bush, Bruce Hornsby, and Jerry Douglas are a few of the guests throughout.

Check out this awesome cover of "Oh! Darling," with incredible vocals from John Cowan of New Grass Revival:

I think the only other song from the album on YouTube is "Lochs of Dread."

Best New Group: Hawkwind. Lemmy's band prior to Motorhead. I bought a couple of there cd's but I really prefer the HW mix at youtube.

Best re-discovered albums: BOC: Tyranny and Mutation. No "Reaper" or "Godzilla" just g.o.rnr.
And: Aerosmith's "Live Bootleg" (the striped one with the coffee stain on the cover.) Aerosmith at their best, imo. So, another tally mark for the former prime minister and his early-is-better-than-later theory of band evolution.

Merry Christmas,

Sammy Davis Jr, & Buddy Rich - The Sounds of '66 .
Hot live session, in Vegas , that is just lots of fun . Really shows what a great
singer he was, outside of the Rat Pack etc. association . The Buddy Rich band was phenomenal in this period .

Laura Marling - a young (21) singer just released her 3rd album, and winner of Best Solo female artist in this year's Brit awards.I was drawn to her after hearing some songs from an Autumn tour where she played in Abbeys, Cathedrals etc. A beautiful and haunting voice in a variety of styles. I've been catching up on the back catalogue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw6L8_wLJXk
